FLUID CON DEN SING OR HEATING DEVICE.
' To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, LUOIAN F. FORSEILLE,
a citizen of the United States of America,
and resident of Cincinnati, in the county of Hamilton and State of Ohio, have invented a new and useful Improvement in a Fluid Condensing or Heating Device, of which the following is a specification.
An object of my invention is to provide a device that will have a maximum radiating surgace without obstructing the flow of the flui Another object of my invention is to vide a device for the be easily cleaned.
These and other objects are attained by the propurpose stated, that can the accompanying drawing in which:
- shaped Fig. 1 is a transverse sectional view on line 11 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view on ,line 2-2 of Fig. 1.
My invention comprises a casing A having the Water box a formed at its head and the water box a formed at its base. A series of tubes triangular in cross section, extend vertically between the water boxes. The substance to be cooled, oil for example, passes around the tubes as it passes inlet 6 to the oil outlet 6' of the cooling chamber B formed within'the casing.
The casing A has a base water box a into which cold water is fed through the water inb let (L The tube sheet a forms the upper wall of the box a. The tubes a the tube sheet a to, extending upward and passing through the upper tube sheet a that forms the bot tom of the upper boxa. The space between the tube sheets a and a comprises an oil chamber B. The tube sheet a is secured between the sections a and a of the casing by means of the flange a formed on the tube. sheet. Gaskets a are utilized to provide a fluid proof connection between the casing parts and the tube sheet a has a ring or flange (1 of rubber or fibre formed about it, that seats in the V groove formed at the junction of the casing sections a, and a. This connection is fluid proof and permits the expansion of the parts when they are heated. The tubes a aretriangular in cross section and are ar- Specification of Letters Patent.

ranged in such way direct passage in the lowed by the oil as it vice. I o accomplish The battle plates 6 oil inlet 1) to the oil outlet 6. The oil in passing through the device is obliged to pass from side to side of the device because of'the openings 6 placed at alternate ends of the adjacent baffle plates. A series of tube secions a space the baflie plates, the rods 6 extending through the tube sections and through the baffle plates and holding the baffle plates and the tube sheets in a constant relation to one another.
e operation of my device is as follows:
The hot oil enters the chamber B through the port 6 and follows the path indicated by the single headed arrows, by referring to Fig. 2 it will be readily apparent that the oil will repeatedly come in contact with the radiating surface of the same tubes. As the oil moves from side to side through the device, it must follow a circuitous path between the tubes because there are no right angles formed upon any of the tubes and ecause there are no direct passages from the opening 6 in any one bafiie plate to the opening 6 in the baflie plate next below. he water or cooling agent enters the port or. and follows the path indicated by the double headed arrows leaving by way of port a. The passage of the water through the device is quicker and its .path so much shorter than the passage and path of the oil that a very rapid cooling of the oil is possible. The water boxes a and a may be dispensed with and air will pass through the tubes a serving as the cooling medium.
What I claim is:
